A sealant is a type of varnish that is placed in deep pits and grooves to prevent the teeth from developing cavities. No numbing is needed. The grooves and pits are cleaned, a bonding material is placed, and the sealant varnish is placed over top. These do not interfere with bite and are done very quickly. Traditionally, sealants are placed on children as their adult molars grow in, although they can be very effective if used on adults as well. Studies have shown that sealants help reduce the risk of cavities by 80%!
